JOURNEY www. mtiadventurewear.com $60


The Journey SE and the Journey are perfect for standup paddlers because they are


so lightweight and totally open on the sides. The three-dimensional contoured front chest panels fit like a glove. The soft shoulders, trimmed with reflective piping for visibility in low light, don’t rub or chafe. The SE has a stretch mesh pocket and includes a signaling whistle—a Coast Guard requirement in some areas for SUP.

CAPTAIN RESCUE KNIFE www.nrsweb.com $39.95


The folding, lock-blade NRS Captain Rescue Knife is a great choice for guides and swiftwater rescue professionals. It features a rope-cutting hook at the tip and a quick-slicing serrated edge.

It comes with a long inflate/ deflate tube so buoyancy can be adjusted easily. This is essential gear for any kayak expedition.
